Wireless Communication and Applications Above 100 GHz: Opportunities and Challenges for 6G and Beyond
By Theodore (Ted) S. Rappaport, David Lee/Ernst Weber professor of electrical and computer Engineering at NYU Tandon, and founding director of NYU WIRELESS.
We have never, in the history of the US, opened up spectrum above 95 gigahertz (GHz). Now the FCC is opening up new spectrum, which allows us to move all the way up to the terahertz (THz) range. … At NYU we showed that applications could work even better at these higher frequencies with more bandwidth than before. … At NYU WIRELESS, were doing some of the first measurements at 140 GHz. We’re studying the outdoor and indoor propagation characteristics so that the wireless industry can learn to build systems and wifi networks, just like we did in 5G.
